Really Wild report: Womanomics should become a national strategy

Given Japan’s acute demographic crisis, we believe the nation cannot afford to waste its most underutilized asset. While the female employment rate has risen to a record level of 60%, there is still a long way to go. Womenomics should become a national priority. Proposals to boost female employment include expanded daycare and nursing care services, implementation of flexible work arrangements, more objective evaluation and compensation systems, and immigration reforms. Contrary to popular opinion, higher female employment could actually help raise, not lower, fertility rates.
